1:12 Rock Candy by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Rock Candy by Bon-AppetEats
1:12 Scale Rock Candy

Still playing around with candy for my pastry shop room box display. :)

Looking at old fashioned hard candies when I came across rock candy. :icongrandmathunderpants: has a great tutorial for how to make it out of clay ([link]), but I wanted to try another medium to get a more candy like look. So the actual candy isn't polymer clay, but the sticks of the candy are. c:

Still need to work with it a bit more, but for a first try it came out well enough I think.

It looks so close to the real thing! If the sugar crystals were a bit smaller, it'd be perfect.

Well have you heard of Bob Evan's it's like a breakfast place. I got mine there.
I don't know where you live so I can't tell you that there's there, They're probably all around the United States. (I guess)
So if you find one, they'll be the register, the cotton candy ones are light blue. Here, they are 89 cents, if you have one it might be different but no more than a dollar.

I used the technique she has in her tutorial in order to achieve the texture, but that's the only part of it I followed. :)

I haven't had rock candy in a very long time. I remember that I used to love them when I was younger, though. :)
